    Hi everyone! Does anyone know of any good skins for the current version of the M2? There's a big skin pack on Race Department, but was broken when the car was last updated. I'm finding a lot of others to be the same way, unfortunately.

    Hopefully, we'll get a few more from S397 in the future, so we can have a little more variety in the grid.

    Thanks!

    Have you message the author asking him if he is going to update?

    You could update them by yourself. Then it looks so with more than 20 VLN skins:

    I ended up updating the skins myself, and have a little variety in my M2 field now. It's a little tedious, but worth it in the end.

    If the files are in *.mas format you have to go to rFactor 2\Installed\Vehicles\BMW_M2_CS_2020 and in the last version folder put those files.
    If they are in *.dds you have to put them in Factor 2\UserData\player\Settings\BMW_M2_CS_2020

    For skins that are put in Factor 2\UserData\player\Settings\BMW_M2_CS_2020 you have to edit the rcd-file as they are made for an older version of the BMW. VehFile = 1_BMW_M2_CB9DED19F.VEH should work

    Then you should be able to use this skinpack: https://www.racedepartment.com/downloads/bmw-m2-all-my-bmw-m2-s-so-far.34785/

    I added also VLN as Classes an Category and so i have all the VLN skins together and could select them as AI without the stock skins

    For example:

    //[[gMa1.002f (c)2016 ]] [[ ]]
    M2-Cup
    {
    D.Brink
    {
    Team = Zurlinde
    Component = BMW_M2_CS_2020
    Skin = alt_zurlinde.dds
    VehFile = 1_BMW_M2_CB9DED19F.VEH
    Description = BMW M2 #619
    Number = 619
    Classes=VLN
    Category=VLN
    }
    }

    I made for myself a big VLN skinpack as mas-file (with new icons etc. etc.) with more than 20 VLN skins for the M2. I am just asking both authors for permission to relase this pack to the community.

    Permissions granted :)

    Full credit go to the creators of these ecellent skins, Ned and muzikant. Thank you guys :)

    I put all skins together in one pack as a mas-file so it will work also with maybe updated versions of the M2. Created veh-files out of muzikantĀ“s rcd-files, renamed some files because of wrong icons and made new icons for the new UI for every skin with redapgĀ“s famous online-tool. Just put the mas-file in ...rFactor 2\Installed\Vehicles\BMW_M2_CS_2020\1.41 and you should find them under VLN near the end of the carlist.. Opponents are also under VLN. So you could race all skins of the pack without the stock skins. Two skins has number 579. So i changed the description of one to 580.

    If you find a livery with a wrong icon (could happen if skin names are equal) or some type error then please give feedback
